    Vintage Bridgestone – performance gear for the super contenders. Likely an unlabeled Model 700 ~1986, shortly before this bike was renamed the famous RB1.

      Likely an unlabeled Model 700 ~1986, shortly before this bike was renamed the famous RB1. For a similar catalog version (with slightly lesser components) see:
      http://www.sheldonbrown.com/bridgestone/1986/pages/11-bridgestone-700.html.

      Cycle appears to be demo from LOOK, or possibly a team frame that was never built up as there is no Bridgestone model # and LOOK decals came on the frame. Dings in paint, no dents.

      *58cm steel frame - 4130 CrMoly triple-butted frame and tubes. Made in Japan.

      *Shimano 600ex SIS indexed shifting. A step down from the flagship Dura-Ace.

      *Dura-Ace headset. Sugino crankset.

      *Royal Gran Compe brakes w/Shimano 600 SLR brake levers.

      *Mavic MA40 with Shimano 600 hub on front. Wolber T430 with Shimano 600 hub on rear with 7 spd. freewheel. Plus extra rear: Mavic w/ Shimano hub and 6 spd 600 Shimano freewheel. (Extra wheel needs a spoke and truing.)

      *Cinelli handlebars and stem. Continental Ultra 2000 tires.

      *Bling factors: Crimson red, the orange tint in my photos is false. Cool Shimano engraving on shifters and front derailleur. Oh yes, it rides like the classic it is.
      $375 plus shipping.

      The 700 is a nice bike but the RBT predecessor was the 700T a few pages down.  The 700 is more road than touring geometry and components.  I don t need

        Bridgstone though.
